I’m leading a Teach21 professional development workshop today, Our Portfolios, Ourselves: Crafting a Digital Portfolio of Your Work as an Educator. Here’s the description for the morning plan:
Curation is a 21st Century skill, so let’s show how to gather archival evidence of your professional endeavors and classroom projects in a digital portfolio. You’ll learn tips to get started: What to gather? Where to put it? How much will this cost? How to organize it? What settings to use? How to link or embed artifacts? How to connect with others?

Above are the slides and recording from my Our Blogs, Ourselves presentation for the 2015 Spring Blog Festival. Here’s my short description of what I’ll talk about: Curation is a 21st Century skill, and Karen has been curating her digital presence for years. She will share how and why she gathers archival evidence of her professional endeavors and classroom projects in a digital portfolio and offer some tips to get started. Simply put, Dr. Nellie Deutsch (@NellieMuller) is a dynamo. I thought I was busy, but Nellie puts me to shame. While I organize/attend/present at many conferences in any given year, you’d probably need to add a zero to approximate Nellie’s schedule. She coordinates and facilitates countless conferences and opportunities to connect online, and I’m lucky to be on her mailing list. Whenever I can, I accept her invitations to be part of something interesting for educators. March 21, 2015 is the second annual Spring Blog Festival. (She even had a Fall Blog Festival in the interim!) Nellie is co-organizing the SBF with María Jesús García San Martín (@mjgsm). Here’s their great description from the SBF event website:
The Spring Blog Festival (SBF) is a one day annual event that takes place on March 21. The aim of the festival is to showcase bloggers and their work. Topics range from transformational blogging and reflective blogging to connectivity, history, evolution, teaching tools, multi-media, thinking & creativity, families, schools, and content curation.
